About our Client
Our client is one of the divisions of a large organisation based in Westerham, Kent. Their aim is to provide and deliver sophisticated financial planning to individuals and companies, in a transparent and value-driven manner through partnerships with advisory firms. They act for their clients and believe that the quality of what they do sets the success benchmark for the company.
Due to their continued success and growth, they have a rare opportunity for a Junior IFA to join this well-established, personable practice to support one of their IFAs.

Full training and support will be given, however existing experience in a similar role will be highly advantageous e.g. either a Junior IFA looking to progress or a Paraplanner looking to move into a client servicing role.
